Georgia residents will have the opportunity to help researchers find out what’s the buzz with insect pollinators in their state. Pebble Hill Plantation in Thomasville, Georgia will be hosting The University of Georgia Cooperative Extension’s Great Georgia Pollinator Census on August 20 and 21 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. During this historical initiative, participants will record the numbers and types of pollinators that populate our state. The event is designed for all ages, and attendees do not have to be an expert to participate.Taking part is easy – and FREE! Participants will choose their favorite pollinator plant in the Pebble Hill Kitchen Garden and count how many pollinators they observe for 15-minutes. The Pebble Hill staff will then assist counters by submitting their count data on the census website: www.ggapc.org. All guests will be asked to social distance and follow current COVID-19 CDC guidelines.
